Hudson County Community College Week 4 Industrial Revolution Discussion

Hudson County Community College Week 4 Industrial Revolution Discussion

Question Description

I’m working on a history discussion question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

Questions to consider addressing:

In what kinds of conditions did the workers live and work?

Why do the wollen workers petition against the use of machines?

Why might workers organize themselves to push back against industrialization?

What are the arguments in support of industrialization by the industrialists?

How do industrialists argue that industrialization is good for everyone?

What are the issues surrounding child labor?

Feel free to raise some other points as well.
